Stillness

God is stillness. What is changeless is still. The world has the appearance of movement, frantic movement in a rushed society, but the Real underlying this hurriedness is stillness. When we get past the appearance, there is only the One. We are not a bunch of separate moving parts. We are still. Take a close look at a flower or a tree. It may be blown by the wind, but that is an effect, not a cause. The effect changes, the cause remains still. The surface (the appearance) of a lake or the ocean moves, but as you go deep, it is still. That stillness is you. You are not this frenetic and busy person in a body. That is what you have chosen to exhibit as part of the appearance. You are the Stillness.
